About Top Dog Training
We speak dog! And just as important, we love dogs.
Top Dog Training provides personalized training for any dog, any age, any behavior. We are training and behavioral specialists, providing basic and advanced dog training through positive reinforcement. We work according to your needs – Whether your dog is 5 or 100 pounds, pure or mixed-breed, 10 weeks old or 10 years old, Top Dog Training is there for you and your dog. Our territory includes Nassau County, Queens, and Western Suffolk County. Your home will be, at most, 45 minutes away from our home base in Great Neck. As training progresses, we may venture out to the backyard and eventually to a public park to sharpen your dog’s new skills.
We only use positive dog training methods. That means your dog will always be treated kindly with us. Happy voices, treats, and repetition are the only ways to train. We consider punishment and unnecessary devices such as shock collars to be archaic.
We believe in teaching dog owners to impart simple, effective, time-efficient and cruelty-free techniques that work alongside every dog’s natural instincts. Since Top Dog Training’s methods are generally based on how dogs naturally communicate, your dog will be quick to adapt and learn.
Jay is a natural dog whisperer – there is no other way to put it. The smile on his face as he trains shows that he cares deeply about the well-being of all dogs, and will make your dog happy and comfortable to be trained.
He has had many dogs of his own over the years, and trained each using only positive method techniques. Jay has great success training dogs of all breeds, ages, sizes, and genetic backgrounds, and he has developed a knack for solving the problems of difficult dogs, whether they are in Forest Hills Queens, Great Neck, or Huntington.
Of course, Jay’s pedigree includes certification from a top dog training school, the International School for Certified Dog Trainers (ISCDT). Jay is an American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen and Temperament evaluator.
Jay is passionate about dog training. He loves to transform unruly, stressed, aggressive or fearful dogs into confident, responsive, attentive, and loving pups. He would be honored to work with your dog on basic training, or just to fine-tune some nuisance behaviors
